Something to look forward to:
Book tours are excellent things, and one is lucky to get to go on one, but they have a way of leeching away one’s will to live. The point of a book tour, basically, is to travel around telling everybody about how great you are, but you’re constantly underslept and hungover, and after awhile you start to have creeping doubts as to your own greatness.
Next Monday I embark on a two-month long stretch of travel and talking to support Steal Like An Artist. I’m sitting here with a sore throat after a day-long radio interview marathon, and at this point, I’m seriously doubting my ability to stay healthy and sane through such a schedule. But there’s no turning back now, so it’s vitamins and sleep and prayers…
Couple of ways to keep up with me over the tour:
- I’ll be posting new dates and info on my events page.
- I’ll be collecting bits of ephemera on the tour diary page.
- I’ll be making the occasional post on Tumblr.
- As always, the best way to keep in touch is to follow me on Twitter: @austinkleon
Unfortunately, as many cities as we’re hitting, there are some geographical holes in our itinerary. We might fill them in, or we might have to hit ’em next time.
